Whenever I go out for breakfast I order Shakshuka and on Sunday I decided to make my own at home. It’s a simply dish to try and delicious with flavours. Shakshuka is a Mediterranean egg dish cooked with tomatoes, capsicum and spices such as cumin, paprika and chilli flakes. Garnished with feta chesses, coriander, basil and green chilli.
I tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon paprika
pinch of chilli flakes or to your liking
3/4 Capsicum chopped (I added more)
1/2 onion chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
250g tin crushed tomatoes
25g chopped feta cheese
1/2 green chilli (optional)
Heat oil in a frying pan. Cook onions and capcicum for 5 minutes or until soft.
Add garlic and cook for a few seconds, add spices and cook until fragrant.
Add tomatoes and season, and bring to a simmer.
Slowly add eggs to mixture, reduce heat and cover with a foil paper and cook for 4-8 or to your liking.
Once ready, garnish with feta, basil, coriander and chilli.
You can bake the eggs instead of leaving it on the stove. Bake eggs for 7-8 minutes.
